Treatment of Temporomandibular Ankylosis in a Cat with Unilateral Condylectomy
This month's case was a male mixed cat "Lucky", which we think is about 1.5 years old. In the anamnesis taken from the patient's owner, it was learned that the cat was a stray cat taken care of in the school garden. He could not open his mouth fully for about one month and could not eat his food, so he was fed with wet food. The patient’s owner reported that he was brought to our hospital when it was seen that he was weakened because he could not be fed and that his mouth could not be opened when he tried to open it.

In addition, when the animal was straining, the presence of an irregular and bleeding mass protruding out of the anus, approximately the size of a walnut, was noticed, and the dog was brought to our hospital.
